Damonde is a hilarious and unique stand-up comedian in the genre of a Bill Cosby, so much so that Canada’s National newspaper, The Globe & Mail, hailed him as “Comedy’s new Superhero, and perhaps this country’s finest comedic storyteller.” His relaxed, laid-back style and unique comic voice have made him a sidesplitting favourite across Canada and the US.
In 2006 Damonde became the first ever Canadian in its 27-year history to win the illustrious Seattle International Comedy Competition. (The largest of its kind in the U.S) This was a three-week long event and Damonde did 17 shows to be crowned the champion!
Damonde was also awarded the Gold Medal performance for top comedic act at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.
His TV comedy specials have aired on CTV, CBC, HBO, Comedy Network and Comedy Central. His radio stints include CBC’s The Debaters and Madly Off in All Directions, and he has appeared at every comedy festival in North America including the New Faces Gala at Just for Laughs.
Damonde has shared the stage with comedy legends, Robin Williams, Tim Allen and Bob Saget, just to name a few. He has appeared in both film and television, is an accomplished screen writer with two TV shows and one movie currently in development.
